Adam Schiff is letting you down easy on the false Trump-Russia collusion narrative

So this weekend, Adam Schiff made a rather telling statement regarding potential evidence of Trump or the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians. All this time, Schiff has insisted there is evidence of collusion, and when pressed to back that statement up, he usually retreats to claiming he can't say because it's either classified or it would be improper to reveal because the investigation is ongoing.

There's a shift in Schiff's narrative now though. Sunday, Schiff said the supposed evidence is pretty much already out there:


Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday there is "plenty of evidence of collusion or conspiracy in plain sight" regarding the Trump campaign and Russia.


Now that doesn't totally translate to that, but he further said this:


Schiff said the congressional investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election "revealed evidence that goes to the issue of conspiracy and collusion, a lot of which is now public," but did not elaborate.


A lot of which is now public, not all, but he can't say it's all public because then that would stop the rampant speculation leading up to the midterms. Of course he can't say that. This is still a big departure from his past insinuations that they had some hard evidence that they can't reveal yet. Note he didn't add "but there's more that's not out there yet" or anything like that.

He sums up the situation in the second part of the first quote that I shifted down here since it's a good summation:


But he admitted that doesn't mean "there's proof beyond a reasonable doubt of a criminal conspiracy," saying it would be up to special counsel Robert Mueller to potentially make that case.


For those of you hoping Schiff or Mueller has some smoking gun up their sleeve, this is Schiff telegraphing to you that they don't have one, in my opinion. He's basically saying that Mueller is going to have to work with what's public because that's all they really have. Translation: they have nothing.

Furthermore I still stand by my assessment that if they had hard evidence that Trump was involved with Putin to the degree that it would be treasonous, they wouldn't be dragging their feet like they have been. They wouldn't be worried about tacking on additional charges like obstruction or looking at financial crimes. They could do all that later. If there was evidence Trump was a traitor or beholden to Putin, they would present that to Congress ASAP so they could impeach him and remove him from office before he does anymore damage to the country. Obviously they don't have evidence of such, or they'd have taken action already. You can go after him for other crimes once he's out of office, doing it all now would put the country at further risk, IF they had evidence he was compromised or in league with Putin.

Anyway, get ready for the letdown when Mueller finishes up.

"Schiff" for brains says "plenty of evidence of collusion or conspiracy in plain sight," regarding the Trump campaign and Russia, but then admits there's no proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Isn't this type of hyperbole a tad contradictory?

Ma, the meatloaf

Dan Bongiono is either the leading expert on this. He’s podcasts are on point.

Or

There are going to be some very, very disappointed people, my friend. Considering all the broken hearts, dashed spirits, wailing, and gnashing of teeth when Hillary lost and dropped all her candy in the toilet, making them all look like idiots and act like 4 year olds, I just don't know how they are going to bear it.

Well, suffice it to say that I'm really, REALLY going to enjoy this.

I'm curious to see how many of them have the strength of character to apologize, or even (GASP) admit they were wrong.

Frankly, considering the way they've behaved for the last year, I'm not expecting much.

If you think Schiff is backtracking, wait till they get a load of what WE brung 'em.

What a wondrous time to be alive...

*SNIFF*. Damn near brings a tear to me eye.

Excellent OP there my friend. Thank you.

Oh, and before anyone asks, the answer is yes, I do have a list.

I agree with your assessment entirely.

All he is doing is posturing to keep the Democrat base whipped up for the midterms.

This time they have RUSSIANS!!! Instead of the normal tripe they trot out for each election cycle.

S&F...

Yes, but considering who said it, It's not really surprising, is it?

Well, he's right that the evidence of the conspiracy is already out there in the sense that this whole thing is a conspiracy to cover for the conspiracy uncovered in the DNC leaks.

Why so many people seem to enjoy being led around by the nose is the real mystery to me here.

Too bad there's no crime in that story. Changes nothing.

"But he lied!"

First day discussing politics?

Yeah, there’s plenty of evidence in the public already, Trump just admitted to it Sunday. Now the degree of collusion at the moment via Trump, just one meeting and nothing more. It’s always it’s never happened, then when evidence surfaces, to well yeah but only mininial events that amounted to nothing.

Now, why are Dem’s so quiet? Well, some are already writing and trying to gain supppet for impeachment but we don’t hear much about that. So why aren’t they making noise and pushing their agenda?

Muellers investigation. That and Democrats are a minority and all their agenda will be voted down via the GOP.

I have to wonder, just what more do you people need? He has changed this trump tower meeting story, HOW MANY TIMES? trump is admitting collusion, which I don't know how many times, he tweeted "no collusion" or how many damn times he said to the cameras, "no collusion" I would have to say, combined, well over 100, easy.


Never, ever, ever, have a seen a POTUS, lie so blatantly in my 47 years on the planet. It is laughable, at this point to defend, the no collusion story. trump HIMSELF TWEETED, they met the Russians to get dirt on Hillary. Its right there on twitter....and it is something he denied and called FAKE NEWS for a year and a half.....


Go ahead, call me names, Don't care. There are so many lies, its dumbfounding....trump did not dictate JRs letter, until he did....It was adoption, till it wasn't, trump did not know about the meeting until he did...What else does the man lie about?


Lie after lie...… This is beyond any POTUS before...Oh and one more thing....Muller/Russia....10 indictments spanning 35 people, 3 businesses, 5 guilty pleas, one on trial, and he has strong RUSSIAN ties.


The Clintons White Water investigation (if you are under 40 you will have to look it up, not doing homework for you) 30 Months, 1 person indicted....


The Russia, investigation NEVER WAS A WITCH HUNT!

How about, "if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance"? Obama was a lie from the very start. All presidents lie at one time or another and Obama was no saint. As a mater of fact, he was probably the worst president in American history, in my opinion.

Suuuure, just keep on trucking, 'cause Trumps going nowhere 😌

I'll up your indictments to an FBI head being fired, his deputy being fired, FBI and DOJ personnel relocated and demoted, all from a baised investigation into the campaign.

Keep eating that feed Kurt, you're always wrong.
